Over 8 years ago (whoa I can’t BELIEVE it has been that long!) I was at freshman orientation at CNU. A friend of mine and I went to a “dance party” in a residence hall lounge.. one of the many exciting things planned for that weekend. Problem was, when we got there, though there was loud music, not a soul was dancing. My friend and I decided to start dance anyways.. and the first person to join us, a total stranger then, is now my best friend in the world. Caitlin has one of the most incredible hearts of anyone I know and I am so honored to call her a friend. Living this far away from her is killing me, and I am SO thankful her and her future hubby are planning to visit us here in Kenya. Thankfully, I can call her and it’s like I’m sitting right next to her, or Facebook her my ridiculous thoughts from the day, just like normal.
ANYWAYS.. I love her, you get the point.. well a few months ago when she called me to ask about how someone goes about booking an engagement session with us, I started to freak. All I could do was keep asking her “why do you need to know that? Why, what’s happening? Why?!”. She finally let me know that Ray had finally proposed! And I of course, started hysterically crying. I could not be more excited for these two. I love Ray so much and I am so excited that my best friend, with a heart of gold, has found the man that deserves her.
Such good model faces!
Check back for part II.. just as soon as this Kenyan internet uploads it!
We met up with Brendan and Ali in downtown Richmond and when Brendan stepped out of the car in his dress blues followed by Ali in an adorable red dress and killer boots, I about died. I knew this shoot was going to be a favorite right away. They make such an amazing couple and were so excited to be spending time together (Brendan has been away with the Navy and was just back for a quick Thanksgiving break) that they pretty much did our job for us. We barely posed these two at all. Just two people totally in love spending an afternoon together, and I am so glad we were there to capture it. Enjoy some of our favorites.
My new favorite ring shot!
Ah! They are so adorable!!!
When I got the email from Emily that she wanted us to photograph this amazing time in her life I was thrilled, then terrified, then nervous, then thrilled again. I have known and loved these two since I was like 12, so I was so excited when they asked us to be their photographers. But then I thought, crap! What if they don’t absolutely love their images? Then I thought, oh my goodness.. I am going to know everyone at their wedding and we are going to be watched the whole time. But then I thought, wait. That is an AMAZING thing. We are going to know everyone involved and that will make us find the best images possible so I got excited again. What a whirlwind! haha.. Emily has such confidence in us and I hope we don’t disappoint! I really hope you LOVE your images Emily and Jonathan! We love you!
What can we say, except we could photograph Jonathan and Emily all day long! They were a joy to photograph – just look at how happy they are together!
Angela and Kai are a wonderful couple we had the pleasure to photograph a short while ago, though somehow their complete post did not make it onto the blog yet! So, here they are, in the beautiful Maymont Park in Richmond! Angela & Kai, we had an absolute blast celebrating with you on your engagement, and are looking forward to your Wedding!
At the end of last week we had the opportunity to photograph one of the cutest couples we have ever met! It was a beautiful evening, with the sun peeking through the evening clouds over Maymont Park in Richmond. Angela and Kai were amazing, & we can’t wait to share the rest of their beautiful photographs! Congratulations you guys!
Watch out everybody! Our first engagement couple of the year were a blast to be with! They were fun, energetic, and really made the most of the experience. The result is always more beautiful when the couple gets involved. I can’t wait to show them all off!
A wonderful family/engagement shoot is coming..
